Texans | DeAndre Hopkins expected to report on time

Sun, 23 Jul 2017 13:22:50 -0700

Houston Texans WR DeAndre Hopkins has not made a lot of progress in contract extension talks with the Texans but is expected to report to training camp on time. Both sides are motivated to reach an agreement on a long-term deal.

Fantasy Tip: Hopkins will continue to be the focal point in the passing game in 2017 and will look to improve on his stats from last season. He will be working with an inexperience quarterback this season but should still be able to be one of the better receivers in the NFL. He probably should be considered a No. 1 or No. 2 receiver in all fantasy leagues.

Texans | DeAndre Hopkins hoping to stay

Fri, 07 Jul 2017 19:55:37 -0700

Houston Texans WR DeAndre Hopkins said he feels the city has embraced him and Houston feels like his hometown. "I love being here," Hopkins said. "I love playing for this team, great organization."

Fantasy Tip: Hopkins suffered from poor quarterback play last season, but he is just two years removed from a 111-catch, 1,521-yard campaign. Don't be surprised if he recaptures his WR1 form this season.

Texans | Tom Savage taking advantage of reps

Sat, 03 Jun 2017 21:01:31 -0700

Houston Texans QB Tom Savage said taking reps with the first-team offense has been a great opportunity to work on his timing and communication with WR DeAndre Hopkins and the other starters.

Fantasy Tip: Savage is just keeping the seat warm for Deshaun Watson, and even if he breaks camp as the starter, Savage is low-end QB2 for fantasy purposes.

Texans | DeAndre Hopkins learning from Wes Welker

Fri, 26 May 2017 20:40:51 -0700

Houston Texans WR DeAndre Hopkins said it has been great learning from assistant coach Wes Welker.

Fantasy Tip: Hopkins was the victim of poor quarterback play last year, but the WR1 upside is still there. If he slips past the first few rounds, don't hesitate to snatch him up.

Texans | DeAndre Hopkins wanted Deshaun Watson

Thu, 27 Apr 2017 19:37:59 -0700

Houston Texans WR DeAndre Hopkins told the media prior to the 2017 NFL Draft that he would love to have QB Deshaun Watson throwing him the ball.

Fantasy Tip: If Watkins can break camp as the starter, he will be worth a flier as a low-end QB2 in redraft leagues. He has QB1 potential long term, giving him even more value in keeper formats and rookie drafts.

Texans | HOU intent on signing DeAndre Hopkins

Thu, 02 Mar 2017 08:45:49 -0800

Houston Texans WR DeAndre Hopkins is a player the team is intent on signing to a contract extension, according to general manager Rick Smith.

Fantasy Tip: Nuk saw a huge decrease in production last year, but a lot of it was due to spotty quarterback play. It still has some wondering if his 111-1,521-11 dominance in 2015 was an aberration with two modest lines on each side. The upside is there, and who's to complain if he falls to the low-end WR1 range?

Patriots | New England pursued DeAndre Hopkins

Sun, 05 Feb 2017 11:04:20 -0800

Houston Texans WR DeAndre Hopkins was a primary trade target for the New England Patriots during the season. Prior to dealing LB Jamie Collins to the Cleveland Browns for a conditional third-round pick, the Patriots asked for Hopkins in a potential trade for Collins.

Fantasy Tip: Collins' tendency to freelance and miss assignments went play any better for Texans defensive coordinator Romeo Crennel than it did for Patriots defensive coordinator Matt Patricia, but the offer is still interesting nonetheless. As it is now, Hopkins has stated he loves playing in Houston and the Texans are interested in extending his contract, so expect him to remain in Texas for the foreseeable future.

Texans | DeAndre Hopkins may receive new deal

Wed, 01 Feb 2017 12:14:52 -0800

Houston Texans owner Bob McNair said the team will try to sign WR DeAndre Hopkins to a long-term extension this offseason.

Fantasy Tip: Hopkins had a disappointing 2016 season and finished with 954 yards and four touchdowns during the regular season. He played better during the playoffs with 11 catches for 132 yards and one touchdown in two games. He will continue to be the team's top receiver in the passing game in 2017 and can be a low-end No. 1 or a No. 2 receiver in leagues depending on the quarterback situation.

Texans | DeAndre Hopkins kept mostly in check

Sat, 14 Jan 2017 21:12:39 -0800

Houston Texans WR DeAndre Hopkins tallied six receptions for 65 yards in a Divisional Round loss to the New England Patriots.

Fantasy Tip: Hopkins was able to find a better connection with Brock Osweiler late in the season and had nine targets in this one, but 2016 will still go down as a bust for "Nuk" in large part because Osweiler struggled so much in getting him the ball downfield. This offseason should present a nice buy-low window for patient owners, but those in redraft should probably consider him a WR2 at best until they see significant improvement from Osweiler.

Texans | DeAndre Hopkins not on injury report

Fri, 13 Jan 2017 14:36:26 -0800

Updating a previous report, Houston Texans WR DeAndre Hopkins (knee) was limited during practice Friday, Jan. 13, but is not on the injury report for the Divisional round playoff game against the New England Patriots.

Fantasy Tip: Hopkins will be a big factor in the passing game even though he is dealing with the knee injury. He likely will lead the team in targets during the game and can be considered a No. 2 receiver in fantasy leagues.
